WEDNESDAY 28 MAY ADELS GROVE
I was on tents. Did the baby’s washing. So many nappies!
John was on canoes. A camper asked John where all the staff had gone to, in the bus, last night. Apparently, one group of guests had decided there was a mass staff walkout and we had all gone to Mt Isa!
The mail came in. I was finding that, recently, I was not even getting time to read my paper properly, but it was still comforting to have some idea of what was going on in the world outside.
We heard from L. She’d been offered a job in the tavern at Karumba, but there was no work on offer for daughter, so they both decided to keep going and go pick tomatoes at Bowen.
Company tour group came in. The guide this time was the company owner, and part owner of Adels. He always stayed in “his” room – partitioned off at one end of the old coolroom donga (which was now a general storage area). So I had to make sure, in the morning, that his room was clean and ready for occupancy.
